Clint_s Controls Corner Each month, our Lighting Controls Department Manager, Clint Conley, offers insight and advice about lighting controls. Clint, a licensed professional electrical engineer, brings over 15 years of construction, engineering, and lighting controls experience to the table. He takes the often confusing topic of lighting controls, and presents information in a straightforward and concise manner.

With the latest in LED technology and controls systems, dimming is becoming standard practice for most lighting installations. Control and fixture compatibility is essential to correct dimming functionality. Dimming mismatches continue to be problematic on many projects, and are often discovered when all components are installed, leading to rework of either the controls or the fixture components.

In order to avoid problems, it is critical to know the different dimming types, and to check for fixture and controls compatibility before installation. Finding accurate information on the different dimming types and how each works can be frustrating, so MH has developed the following guide to help.
